Our best Euroleague basketball tips

%d0%ba%d0%b5127If you have decided to start betting on the Euroleague basketball games, or if you have been doing for a while and are looking for some extra info, you have come to right place. This article will cover some of the upcoming highlights of the new season, and we should be able to steer you in the right direction when it comes to where the smart money lies. It is no secret that the Euroleague is one of the best basketball leagues in the world. The number of teams that take part in the competition as well as the number of games played make the Euroleague one of many, many options when it comes to betting scenarios.

2016-2017 Season Format

The first thing that you will need to do to get yourself ready for the upcoming season is to get to know the teams that will be playing in the Euroleague tournament. There will be only sixteen teams taking part in this year’s line-up which brings the focus in a bit when compared to previous seasons, but that is a very good thing, in our opinion. The main reason that fewer teams is more advantageous for the bettor is that it is generally easier to gain a deeper understanding of all of the teams involved. As with any live sport, basketball comes with more than its fair share of variables to consider and being able to see through most of them always proves useful. As usual, the teams will battle it out throughout the season with the competition culminating in the final series of games consisting of four teams.

The Line-up

The teams playing in this year’s line-up are all very good. They come from all over Europe and, by the looks of it, it’s going to be a fight to the finish. The teams playing are:

  • 561654Anadolu Efes
  • Brose Bamberg
  • EA7 Emporio Armani Milan
  • Olympiacos
  • Darüşşafaka Doğuş
  • Real Madrid
  • Baskonia

  • Žalgiris
  • Panathinaikos Superfoods
  • Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv
  • FC Barcelona Lassa
  • Fenerbahçe
  • Galatasaray Odeabank
  • Crvenena Zvezda mts

Possible Winners

If you are trying to narrow this list down to a short list of possible overall winners, there are some teams that have done consistently well over the past few years. There are a lot changes from season to season in the world of basketball so we won’t go too far back, but looking at the results from the 2006-2007 season until now, we can see some definite trends.

Past Winners

Panathinaikos Superfoods of Greece has taken the Cup three times over the past ten years, but it’s been six years since we’ve seen them win it. Another Greek team, Olympiacos has taken the championship twice in the same time frame. FC Barcelona, Maccabi Tel Aviv, and Real Madrid have all won it once in the past ten years, and CSKA Moscow took the win nine years ago and again last year.

If you want our opinion, we would say that following the strength, height, and speed of the above mentioned teams would be a great place to start.

Final Thoughts

Betting on the Euroleague can be a little tricky in the beginning, but once you get the hang of it, you probably will not want to stop. It is an extremely satisfying feeling successfully betting on an educated guess. We use the term “guess” lightly here as we know that for many people it goes beyond mere guessing, but we hope you get our drift. No matter where you are in the world, you can enjoy the Euroleague from the comfort of your own home, but if you want the full excitement you are going to have to go to one of the matches. We seriously suggest that you do.
